Dear Culture Enthusiasts,
Here are four ways we experienced joy from the arts in Marin and Marin-based artists this spring:
Limited-edition photography books by Linda Connor and Bryant Austin. A conversation in curator Anne Veh’s Mill Valley yard moved from the garden’s beauty to the limited-edition artist books by Linda Connor and Bryant Austin, recently completed in collaboration with Korea-based Sangyon Joo.
Tucker Nichols painting in “Flowers for Sick People.” Tucker Nichols’ flower-themed art in his “Flowers for Sick People” project is currently included in SFMOMA’s current exhibition “Close to Home: Creativity in Crisis.”
The street mural at Novato’s New Media Learning Center. The New Media Learning Center has partnered with local artists from Marin’s Italian Street Painting Festival to create a courtyard floor mural that celebrates the theme of STREAM — science, technology, reading, art, and math.
Ross Valley Players and Novato Theater Company. The roots of community theater run deep in Marin. As theaters went dark in early 2020, two well-loved theater companies reached significant milestones before the shutdown and are still with us today.
How did art enrich your life and community recently too? We want to hear from you. Share your ideas by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject — Deep Appreciation.
